Product Description

From the Back Cover

When skeletal remains are found beneath the fortified walls of an ancient castle on Northumberland's rugged coastline, DCI Kate Daniels calls on a forensic anthropologist to help identify the corpse.

Meanwhile, newly widowed prison psychologist Emily McCann finds herself drawn into the fantasy of convicted sex offender, Walter Fearon. As his mind games become more and more intense, is it possible that Daniels' case has something to do with his murderous past? With his release imminent, what exactly does he have in mind for Emily?

As Daniels encounters dead end after dead end and the body count rises, it soon becomes apparent that someone is hiding more than one deadly secret . . .

Praise for Mari Hannah

Mari Hannah DCI Kate Daniels Series
The Murder Wall
Settled in Blood
Deadly Deceit
Monument to Murder

I am going to come out with it from the start, I love these books. Those of you who read my first blog will know that I rarely get into books based in England but I was hooked on these from the start.
When Deadly Deceit popped up on Amazon, as a recommended read, I read the review and liked what I saw. Several reviews later I had decided it was a book I wanted to read but, it was the latest in a series, and that meant I had to read the others in order first.
The Murder Wall introduced me to DCI Kate Daniels and her colleagues at the Northumbria Police Murder InvestigationTeam. The team is made up, as any such teams are, of a collection of individuals. Each individual has their own backstory which runs through the series of books. These sub plots add to the main story and help to keep the pages turning. The two young Detectives, who joined the team together, a woman with great computer skills and a man who is excellent at the tedious life of the observation specialist; the middle age detective with gambling problems who is trying to put his life back together; and another who loses the trust of the team; the crusty old hand Detective Sergeant who Kate relies on professionally and in her personal life; Kate’s mentor, and Boss, Detective Superintendent Bright, his own life in turmoil; and a myriad of bit part Police characters which drift in and out of the books always at the right time and in the right context.
Kate herself is struggling with the break-up of a relationship with Criminal Profiler Jo Soulsby, and throughout the series this relationship teeters on the brink of being totally destroyed whilst almost reforming.

There are two story-lines that converge. One features Daniels investigating the remains of children that have been found at Bamburgh beach. Her team moves down there to investigate. We also get drawn into the plot of prison psychologist Emily and her daughter. Emily has been widowed and is struggling getting back to her work-life in the prison. She is dealing with a prisoner, who no one else seems to see as potentially dangerous.

This is such a fantastic read. I particularly was drawn to the Emily plot. I couldn't wait to find out how it would all work out and who was the murderer.

I do love Kate Daniels and her complicated love life. It makes me smile. The conversations between Kate and her ex Jo are brilliant and have a realistic feel to them. And I am very fond of her side kick, Gormley. The beauty of this series is how well you get to know and love the characters.

A great series!!! I particularly recommend reading them all, one after another. I absolutely cannot wait to read whatever Mari Hannah writes next.

Have enjoyed the previous three books in the series, but this was not a patch on them. Not enough police procedural and far too much agonising about the on-off Jo/Kate relationship. Who cares? Just get on with the detective work. Hope her next book will be back on track, because Mari Hannah has created some good characters and her crime situations are always accurate and authentic.

This is the fourth in Hannah's DCI Kate Daniels police procedural series and it is the most satisfying and fully realised so far. It is a tribute to the author's story-telling prowess that it is a given that this is a compelling page-turner, but it is also so much more.

There are two converging plotlines which envelop Kate and her team and provide an enthralling read. Skeletal remains of two bodies are found on the dunes at Bamburgh beach and difficulty in identifying them is just the start of a complex case which sees Kate and the MIT uprooted from the comfort and convenience of their Newcastle base to make do with out-of-season B & B accommodation and a temporary office in Alnwick. And it's snowing hard. Meanwhile, recently widowed prison psychologist Emily McCann has returned to work, much to the delight of Walter Fearon, a convicted, brutal sex offender, soon to be released, who has created a sick fantasy world with Emily at its centre. Gradually, with nerve-tingling inevitability, the plotlines merge and lead to an explosive climax.

Purely as a crime thriller, Monument to Murder is a superb addition to Hannah's absorbing and suspenseful series, but there are elements of narrative and characterisation which take this book to an altogether higher level. The whole work is infused with a much more personal feel, adding subtle depth and warmth which really speak to the reader.

Mari Hannah's love of Northumberland in all its topographical variety shines through. Anyone who knows the coastal area around Bamburgh will delight in recognising the exact locations of the action. Her descriptions of the bleak beauty of the coast are evocative but sparing. They are an integral part of the story, never slowing the action.

“The surf was pounding the shore, great white waves rolling further and further inland before being absorbed into the sand”

This is the fourth in the DCI Kate Daniels series, set this time along the coastal areas of north Northumberland, mainly Bamburgh, down to Low Newton-by-the-Sea and Alnwick.

Britain’s northerly and least populated county is in the grip of Winter, snow showers have forced the investigating team to set up an investigation room in a B & B in Alnwick, as they look into the discovery of the skeletons of two young females, buried within spitting distance of the imposing, fairy tale castle at Bamburgh, overlooked by Holy Island. At the time of burial, both girls had been dressed in specific clothing, and certain items are to become key to the investigation…. it almost seems like there is a devotional element in the way the bodies have been buried in the sand.

Meanwhile, over at HMP Northumberland Emily McCann is getting back to her work in the psychological services of the prison, having had time off to mourn the death of her husband Robert. At home her daughter Rachel has responded to her father’s death in a way that has caused her mother great concern – Rachel has closed down, become erratic and secretive, they just cannot communicate and be supportive to each other at this difficult time. At the prison, Emily is becoming increasingly alarmed by the behaviour of Walter Fearon, a prisoner who is due to be released, but who has pronounced psychopathic tendencies; his beady focus is on her. Will anyone take her seriously?

Kate’s team is hard pressed to make sense of the burials, Nominal 1 and Nominal 2 (we learn that only the media refer to older, unsolved cases as “cold cases”), but the team, under Kate’s direction, pulls together well.
